Happenings at Triangle Realty

The Greatest Hunting Convention on the Planet

Jan 15, 2016

Triangle Realty was in attendance at the Dallas Safari Club Convention at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center last weekend in Dallas, Texas.  The event is also known as the “Greatest Hunter’s Convention on the Planet” and for good reason.  There was an estimated 30,000 people comprised of men, women and children walking the aisles of the trade show, attending banquets, and participating in seminars over the four day period.  JT and Jamie Haynes  (Broker/Owners of Triangle Realty) had the opportunity to attend the convention while promoting Triangle Realty and the brokerage's recreational properties.  JT & Jamie were able to meet potential buyers, make connections with land brokers throughout the country & learn about specialty vendors that can help improve service to their own client's.

The DSC (Dallas Safari Club) Convention renewed old friendships from the Texas Panhandle and opened up doors for meeting new Panhandle connections.  The group ran into the Vernon family shopping for possible silent auction items to bid on.  Richard Weather with Republic Forge had a booth at the event.  Mr. Weather sells pistols out of Perryton, TX and also teaches CHL classes in Amarillo, TX.

Also in attendance were members of the USA Olympic Shooting Team.  Did you know that the most decorated Olympian in history is a United States shooting team member?  Unlike more physically demanding sports, you are never too old to compete in shooting sports. Historically, there have been Olympic shooters that were well into their 60’s.

Top of the line gear?  The DSC Convention had that covered as well.  Infrared night vision scopes and goggles, handmade firearms, hunting apparel and all-terrain vehicles.   Vendors were also selling guided hunts from Russia, England, Spain, Italy, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America, Alaska to right up the road in New Mexico. 

Among the hundreds of vendors, there were many that caught our eye.  Check out some of our favorites below.  The list just shows the unique nature of the kinds of businesses or associations you'll find at the convention.

 

If you are interested in getting involved with hunting and fishing or already enjoy the great outdoors and want to learn more, please consider attending the event next year.  It will be at the Dallas Convention Center.  There were approximately 1,800 vendors at this year's event and the convention is moving locations to accommodate the approximately 2,000+ vendors they are expecting next year!  If you are considering having a booth, there is already a waiting list!
